We, The Citizens of Singapore
We, the citizens of Singapore,
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society
based on justice and equality
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and
progress for our nation.
The magic word “democratic” is in the pledge. A democratic system of politics means “of, for, or relating to citizens”. The people whom the Citizens choose to elect are there to serve the citizens. Most systems will go back to the ballot box every few years (4 or 5) to validate the mandate.
So, how is that in Singapore, the currently ruling party is able to threaten the very people who are supposed to elect them that if they don’t, they will be penalized.
Remind me who the boss is here? The continued cockiness and outright disconnect with reality by the so-called “A Team” of the PAP is sad.
As their bosses, it is up to us to retire them at the upcoming polls.
